Elusive Ship/Naturalization Information

Postby dlc519 » 10 Oct 2016, 21:00

My Great Grandfather, Luigi Criscillo, came to the US through New York in 1890.
He's from Pietradefusi. His Father was Nicolo Criscillo, his Mother Concetta Petrillo.
He was born May 27, 1863. I have his Italian birth record.

I have not been able to find him on a ship manifest, or any naturalization papers. The US Census
is my only clue that he was naturalized. The 1910, 1920, 1930 and 1940 US Census Records all say he was
naturalized, came to the US in 1890, and according to the 1920 Census was naturalized in 1895.

At that time, 1895, he was residing in New York City on Sullivan Street He moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1902.

My family is interested in dual citizenship, but I have been unsuccessful in proving his naturalization.

Where do I start?

Thank you,
Denise Criscella (name spelling changed in early 1900's)
